About this site's lack of design: Yes, it's supposed to look this way — I'm helping create a new sandbox theme for WordPress (see it on GitHub).

How To Feed

News­feeds (some­times ref­er­enced by their for­mats, such as RSS or Atom) allow you, the reader, to access the con­tent of this site (or any other pro­vid­ing a ‘feed’) via a pro­gram called a news­reader, with­out hav­ing to deal with all the nasty, ugly visual ele­ments of the design–ok, I know this is a really lame expla­na­tion of feeds, but I’ve spent lit­er­ally min­utes attempt­ing to write some­thing bet­ter than Dave Shea’s descrip­tion of rss syn­di­ca­tion, and since I can’t, well, there you have it.

Soupe du Jour of the Day

At present, our menu fea­tures the fol­low­ing del­i­ca­cies (imported fresh, daily):

Pri­mary Feeds: Full Text | Com­ments

Sec­ondary Feeds: Ephemera | Blogroll

Sim­ply click­ing one of these links will open the feed in your news­reader of choice.

Read­ing Lessons

Need a news­reader? No problem–just check out one of these fine hyper­links: Net­NewsWire (Mac), Feed­De­mon (PC), or for you “web-application-lovers” (I just know there’s an alt.web.2.0.application.sex.ducttape.gerbils on some news­group server some­where…), try Blog­Lines or News­Ga­tor Online.
